Anybody want a cupcake?

A change of scenery for today.  Believe me tatting is continuing but it has to be kept a secret at the moment.  I’ve not started on a TIAS yet and have doubts it will happen next year.  I’m doing too may other things at the moment!!  I do have an idea which I think is good but actually making a TIAS out of it is not yet happening.

Meanwhile a neighbour asked me to make a pair of earrings for another neighbour and she chose these cupcakes from the web page which is here.

A lovely diversion!!!

A new sock

It had to happen!!!  Liz decided on a lovely purple and white yarn for her next pair of socks but I couldn’t get it locally.  As she was going into the big city she said she’d pop in and buy it from the larger Hobbycraft there.  

Well this is what she got instead and I think it’s lovely.  I prefer it to her original choice!!!  Funnily enough Ruth (at Friday knitting) was knitting socks with the same yarn last Friday!!!

I’ve made a start on the new pair of socks as you can see.  I’m using a shortish circular needle and the magic loop idea which I find as good as dpn’s.  I like dpn’s (double pointed needles) but I think I’d confuse myself when it comes to working round the heel.  

Oh, this time I’m using this pattern from Ravelry as recommended by t’other Sue!!  I’m enjoying this pattern as Jo (the designer) tells you what and why you’re doing things as you go along.

Patchwork - the centre is together.

Finally made good headway with my ‘so called’ winter project!!!  I was going to keep the patchwork to do over the winter months but sadly it’s called to me too loudly so I’ve got on with it!!!  

The top picture is the finalised middle of the cloth whereas below is just me playing with ideas for the next round of florets.  Of course I still need to decide on the centres of these two and there’s another ‘round’ to go onto the top picture but planning ahead is essential.

Finished - well almost!!

The first scarf is finished - almost.  I just need to sew in the two ends.  

Don’t forget - I have another ball of the same so be prepared for more!!!
